Learn at GPY

Here we outline upcoming opportunities to learn something new. We offer small group classes, evening knitting groups and other special events.

We offer classes for all skill levels: novices; beginner; intrepid beginner, intermediate and advanced. See our current class schedule below.

We also offer Knit-A-Longs (KALs) and Crochet-A-Longs (CALs), which are led by GPY staffers and feature current, contemporary, and fun projects. Participants join in to work on the featured projects together which offers great opportunities to learn from each other and exchange ideas, plus interesting conversation. KAL and CAL series usually have a featured yarn, that is available for purchase at GPY. We recommend that participants have advanced beginner skills to join KALs and CALs.
